Leesburg, VA – On November 25, 2016 members of the Sigma Mu Mu Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. braved the chilly weather, and laced up their cleats for the 4th Annual Morven Park Black Friday Flag Football Tournament. The tournament, which began in 2012, has grown from 60 players to over 300 players. This year over 15 teams participated. Sigma Mu Mu has participated in the event twice. The organizers, other participants and referees noted the grit and toughness that players from the chapter exhibited.
Although Sigma Mu Mu didn’t take the winner’s trophy this year, brothers took the field and displayed a valiant effort in three games over a span of four hours. Many of the brothers brought their children to observe the tournament and to participate. When asked about the competitive nature of flag football, Sigma Mu Mu members explained that it was not about winning or losing but about the fellowship throughout the day. They also discussed the health benefits gained from the rigorous exercise associated with flag football. Not to be outdone, Sigma Mu Mu plans to start practicing a little earlier to get a jump on next year’s competition.
